SUBS IN SCHOOLS TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGE - Tell your school about this! Registration now open 🖋 ✨
The 'Subs in Schools Technology Challenge' from Re-Engineering Australia Foundation is on again this year, and registrations are now open!.
Students design either a Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle (ROV) or a submarine which they must operate. Alternatively they can build a three-dimensional virtual scale model of living quarters in a futuristic submarine.
Students develop a wide range of skills from design, engineering and manufacturing to the ‘soft skills’ sought after by industry (project management, teamwork, collaboration, problem solving, communication). They have then added the complexities of underwater design, coding and electronics. Get your school registered today and involved in this amazing competition! https://bit.ly/3dWlMPG
Exciting to see teams continuously working on projects via online collaboration, here is a little summary of what Elysium has been doing for the past couple of months...
"We are Elysium, a team of five girls from Canberra High School and Queensland Academy of Health Sciences.
During the past few months of self-isolation, we have had to adapt to the new circumstances and alter how we work together as a team while remaining positive and productive.
We have been doing lots of different things over this isolation period. Sarah has been working on Blender so we can produce rendered images of the car. Annika has been working on creating photoshop images and designing the trade display. Emily and Lauren have been coming up with ideas for the car and testing how aerodynamic it is.
They are also looking at materials and designs for better wheels and noses. Alison has been working on keeping in touch with our community and getting a start on the portfolios. We have also been using programs such as Google Meet, Classroom, and Drive to make this online work easier."
Throughout isolation, Edge Performance and Frontier Racing from NSW have been working hard at rebranding and recreating. After the collaboration announcement, Celestial began work immediately, creating a new brand to represent Australia at the 2020 World Finals.
Who else has been rebranding during iso?
In Motion from TAS have celebrated their one year of participating in F1 in Schools! Congrats team.
The girls have been fortunate enough to collaborate together two days a week in current projects and additionally working towards getting their world finals team off the ground with team Seido. Hopefully, there will be an exciting announcement for the new team and brand, as they have been revamping a few things before stepping into professional class next season.
You go girls!
Nothing but smiles!
